I sense some crossed wires here. It was an "I" not an "L" which came from POLISHING OFF. Time to tap some more of that whisky mountain.

You've lost me John!!

No matter. Try these two.

"University goes in for bondage, bounding one drunk. from which gas & water are taken?" (9)

( _ T _ L _ _ _ E _ )

The "E" in that pattern is contingent on "Woe Is Me" being correct for this:-

"Cyclops (setters name) has grief from females, endlessly, holding the centre of their lives" (3,2,2)

Alternatively try this anyone:-

Blair (not that is, one shielded by bum crazy fat kid)" (8)

( _ _ _ _ _ B _ M )

The "B" is contingent on ABSTENTION being a correct solution to this clue:-

"Failure to vote Lab (leader lacking, so intent on 'spinning') " (10)

Any help, as ever, gratefully received.

Well, Anniec you are a true star!!

Just 2 to go!

"Jolly's after orifice" (4,2) ( _ O _ E/ _ _ )

and "Shock condition of teararses when separated" (5,4)

( S _ L _ _ / _ N _ S )

I think this is correct. Please tell me if i@m wrong!!

"Old leader from old city with pecker in an erect state" (5) I've inserted NEHRU. Can you see the wordplay? I can't!!
